Only 37 years young, Thomas AdÃ¨s is a vibrant and influential figure in contemporary music. As a talented composer, conductor and pianist, AdÃ¨s has been called “the next Benjamin Britten” and “the great new voice of British music.” He joins NWS to present two of his own large-scale works, These Premises Are Alarmed — dubbed a “firecracker of intensity” — and Tevot — a large-scale symphonic journey based on the title’s Hebrew translation of “arks” or “place of refuge.”
Canadian soprano, Barbara Hannigan joins NWS to reprise her role of Madame X in Barry’s The Stronger, a part the requires passionate dexterity in portraying frantic vocal explosions, as well as lullaby-like cadences. Ms. Hannigan received rave reviews for her portrayal of the unstable Madame X at The Stronger’s world premiere in Paris in 2007. We are thrilled to have her with us this week in this chaotic, yet widely-entertaining character.
The music of Gerald Barry, a well-kept secret in the U.S., is full of musical and theatrical imagination. As the leading Irish composer of his generation, Barry’s musical genius has been described as “part mad Stravinsky, part mad Handel.” With Thomas AdÃ¨s at the podium, Barry’s two U.S. premieres, The Stronger and Diner, are sure to be an experience you won’t want to miss.
